Applause for Three Hands in the Fountain

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Most definitely! Lindsay Davis' character Marcus Didius Falco is believable and likable. The story takes twists and turns that were unexpected and Falco's dry humour helps to glue it all together.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Falco, with his dry wit, is easily my favourite character, although many of the others have significant roles in allowing Falco to manipulate his way through the story.

Which character – as performed by Christian Rodska – was your favorite?

As above - Falco - although Christian Rodska is one of the best narrators I've ever heard. He adds music, character and mood to the words. When he speaks for a given character, the voice is so different, it's almost as if a different person was speaking. Such a delightful man to listen to. I'm extremely pleased he's narrated so much of the series.

Latin detective work

Good handling of another in the series. The use of English dialects/accents was very good to differentiate between the characters and to set the tone. Will continue to follow this series.

Favourite Falco

Hot summer in Rome, a good mystery, and learn about Roman viaducts on the way.
Rodska is the best narrator, and he brings this novel to life. It is very straight forward and not as complcated as some of the other books in the series. Descriptions abound and it is an action driven novel that keeps you right up there with Falco.
Helena and her brothers are there, but more as supporting characters, leaving Marcus and Petro to lead the way.

Mystery and intrigue in Ancient Rome

If you could sum up Three Hands in the Fountain in three words, what would they be?

Informative, imaginative and exciting

What did you like best about this story?

I love the combination and strength of characters, the way that Falco always seems to be thumbing his nose at all in authority and the historical detail which adds to the story rather than bogging it down.

What about Christian Rodska’s performance did you like?

A natural reader with a wonderful voice

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I very nearly did!
